If you just want to play for the story (I'm gonna assume your a star wars fan) as you know each class gets their own story now is probably the best time. With the newest expansion they made the game very casual. Any companion can be heals tank or fps, so no more being force to use a specific companion because of their that.

The game is also a lot less grindy now. Class story quests and planetary ARC quest give you enough XP to move onto the next planet. So side quests now are completely optional. Also just for your information if you sub once you get every expansion that has cone out and keep them even after your sub ends.

Bought one and never used it. Completely unnecessary if you ask me even if your building on carpet. Unless you're one of those people who dance around in fuzzy stocks and cuddle with a furr animals while you build computers.

Whoops my bad for the sloppy wording I meant the outer panels too. The noctis is a pretty nice case. I think they did a good job with it especially with the airflow.the front intakes not choked off like h440 right? I'm still catching up on my parts.

I suppose, I guess I just like other minimalist cube cases like the 400C or Define R5.

I can agree with that. I love the define R5. I thought you meant you didn't like all minimalist cases. Which was why I explained why I like them.

The H440 is riding that strange line of "minimalist but gamery" which rubs me wrong.

Gamery that's the word I was looking for.

Also it's all plastic outside, which I don't mind so much on the Phantom lineup, but makes the H440 feel and look cheap.

Steel construction all the way man. Or at the least don't make the plastic look cheap.

– NZXT H440, I don't understand why all the cube "minimalist design" cases are so popular.

It s simple and clean. sharp edges and in your face colors don't make me feel cool or edgy. My friends don't come over and say dude your case looks like a f** shark that's awesome! (had a friend who's case reminded me of a shark). I just want a box with a window, so I can see my parts hence why I got an S340 that and I was on a $450 budget, but that's not the point haha. Not that I'm particularly fond of the h440 though and I agree its over used.

And How tired are you of seeing people commenting that "you should have waited for pascal" on builds

You should've seen everyone on this site when Maxwell first came out. If anyone didn't have a GTX 970 they were immediately told they wasted their money. When everything calms down its back to normal. The circle of life.

I would wait for benchmarks and then decide if the 1070 or 1080 is right for you. What is your current monitor set up? If your just running a 1080p 60hz monitor then only buying a 1080 seems a little over kill.

But suppose i want to play some games that my GTX 960 cannot handle in 1440p... could i just turn down the res in half without losing image quality?

Not without losing image quality. It is possible though just change it in the game settings. Everythings going to look ridiculously blown up. But that being said should be fine with a gtx 960 as long as you tone down AA and post processing. For a while I ran 1440p with a 270x which is much weaker than your 960 and I was surprised at how many games could I play at high settings with AA and other effects turned down.

Yeah I ended up reading about the VR stuff after I made the post. But I'm wondering is VR easier to run than non VR? I thought VR would be more difficult. At the least I thought performance with non VR would scale with VR, So say the 1070 performed much better than the titan x in VR wouldn't it also perform much better in non VR too? I'm not well read on VR so if you could explain id appreciate it.

If you could find/remember the pricing history of Nvidias 700 series I'd imagine Maxwell will follow a similar trend. At the release of Maxwell Nvidia introduced the Gtx 970 which performed similarly to their then Flagship the 780ti/titan, but for around the $350 range depending on the manufacturer. What Nvidia is doing now with Pascal is similar to what they did then. They're releasing the Gtx 1070 which supposed to perform as well as the 980ti/Titan X at the $379 price point. So I would imagine that the prices of the current gen GPUs could possibly follow the same trend.

You can only sli gpus of the same model so 970 with another 970 for example. So it wouldn't work. You could put both gpus into your PC and have each power a different monitor, but that wouldn't be considered sli since you wouldn't get the extra performance.

(sorry AMD users)

I'll never forgive you. ;)

Anyways if your willing to wait Nvidias 1000 series is right around the corner. The GTX 1070 is going to be priced at $379 and is supposed to outperform the $1000 Titan X. If not you could upgrade to a GtX 970 or 960 now depending on what your needs are. You could also wait and see if the current 900 series drops in price after Nvidia releases pascal.

What is not good about that?

Its great. Its fantastic honestly. I don't know I guess what I'm trying to say is I just don't get why everyone's all freaking out when I consider it something to be expected. Just like I expect the pascals flagship to be whatevers next standard $350-$400 gpu (as long as the tech doesn't stagnate). I will say though I heard the 1080 is suppose to be twice as powerful as the titan X and that has me genuinely impressed.

Why spend $1k now when I can soon get the same performance for $400?

That's not what I'm saying. I'm not saying to go buy a Titan X right now. I 100% agree with you in that people should just wait for pascal now. I just wanted to point out that that just the way these things work. Today's Flagship GPU is next Gens mid to high range GPU (depending on what you'd consider mid or high) . Its really not all that incredible... Well at least purely from a buyers view point. You could make the argument that because they developed GPUs that perform on par with today's flasgships their advancement and production capabilities are incredible... but that's not my point and now I'm just ranting haha.

Titan X power at $400 that is insane.

Not really. That's kinda just what happens when the next generation comes out. Its like when the Maxwell first came out. The 970 gave similar performance to the $1000 titan/780ti, but for $350. Its pretty much the trend for Flagship GPUs.

I buy used parts as long as its a company whose warranty goes by the UPC code that way if anything happens I can still RMA. My first PC I built I bought a used MSI 270x way back for $100 when it was still retailing for $200 then a year later sold it for the same price I bought it for and used the money to buy my 390x. Ah the good ole days.

That damn AMD Fanboy on that sites comment section is trying to ruin Nvidia'a perfect reputation. I cant believe the lengths they will go through just to to try and slander Nvidia's good name. Don't they have anything better to do? Seriously just because the 1080 is going to be the greatest invention in history doesn't mean they need to do that.

Before you guys flip your ****. This is a joke ;). I wonder how its going to be priced though.

A 970 or 390 would be great for 1080p if your willing to spend more than you could get a 980. You could look up comparisons and see if you would consider the 980 worth the extra money. I would say a 980ti would be overkill for 1080p 60hz so id stick with the previous options they should also be excellent options for a while so no worries.

Ah I was wondering what happened because I remembered saying by before I left myself. That was nice of him. Part of the reason I've wanted to comeback is because the staff here put in a lot of effort to make this place great and I want to be a part of that. It's not perfect but they try their best.

I just don't want ot get too addicted to this site.

Part of why I quit too. I used to be on all the time. I'm taking it slow now though and only getting on a few times a day so things don't get out of hand.
